South Africa gets a slap on the wrist for failure to arrest Bashir

Journalists for Justice / 06 July 2017

 Judges at the International Criminal Court have chosen not to refer South Africa to the Assembly of States Parties or the UN Security Council for failing to arrest Sudanese President Omar al Bashir during his visit to Johannesburg in June 2015.

Although the judges found that South Africa had failed to comply with its obligations under the Rome Statute by not executing the Court’s request for the arrest of Al-Bashir and surrendering him to the Court, they argued that punishing it would not foster cooperation.

If the answer is in the affirmative, the President’s action would not only be a violation of a High Court order, but it would also seem to be using the money as a bribe to voters ahead of the August 8 elections.
